As former President Donald Trump called for the release of detainees and political prisoners from the riots at the Capitol starting January 6, 2021, new videos offer a counter-narrative to several elements of the so-called ‘riot’.
Trump paid tribute to Tucker Carlson after the Fox News host released a series of previously unseen videos that contradict several claims made by the media and Democrats since that fateful day.
Videos show Capitol Police Officer Brian Cicnik appearing well and physically able to defend himself despite claims he was killed by a mob, as well as evidence that the ‘Kwanan shaman’ was easily escorted around the complex by police, seemingly contradicting his assertion of behavior. Justifies a prison sentence of several years.
And there was much, much more.
Trump called the dramatic new evidence the ‘biggest scoop’ in American journalism.
“New surveillance footage of the events of January 6 sheds a completely different light on what actually happened,” he wrote on his Satya social media platform. “Let them go free now!”

“An entirely new and entirely opposite picture is now indelibly painted,” he argues. “The non-select committee lied and should be prosecuted for their actions.”
In another post on Truth Social, the former president reiterated his call to be released that day for his relatively mundane actions.
“January 6 let the prisoners go,” he wrote in an all-caps screed. “He was convicted or awaiting trial based on a giant lie, a radical left con job.
Trump said, “Thank you Tucker Carlson and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy for what you both have done. The new video footage is undeniable!

J6 Pledge to pardon prisoners
If Donald Trump wins re-election in 2024, he has long argued that he would pardon many of the individuals charged and convicted for their actions during the January 6 riots.
Not for the actual thugs who wanted violence that day, but rather their presence led to prison sentences.
I asked President Trump if he would pardon the non-violent January 6th perpetrators if he returned to the White House in 2024.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, who spoke with former president and first lady Melania Trump, said the couple was “just sick” of some of the accused Jan. 6 and the way they went after the Capitol riots.
Last December, Trump recorded a video message specifically targeting the J6 defendants.
“People have been treated unconstitutionally, in my opinion, and very unfairly, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it,” Trump said, speaking before a group called the Patriot Freedom Project.
“This is the weaponization of the Justice Department, and we will not allow that in this country.”

Squishy Republicans like Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have strongly condemned Trump for siding with the Jan. 6 protesters and promising amnesty.
Would they oppose such a move now that we have definitive video proof that the prevailing narrative of the day was false?
